    Congrats. You might be the first on the planet that has reached that milestone with your Prius Prime.

    Congrats!! I'm impressed by the 62.4 mpg considering how little you probably got to charge it in order to put on that many miles so quickly.

    Maybe because that's what 1 gallon per hour gets you on average, 61-62mph and 61-62mpg under "US Standard Atmosphere" conditions.
    At least for me, in strict "no change in SOC" HV driving. And that's without getting "alcohol free" gas, which does better.

    Open Pilot is awesome: one of the most underrated add on device to a vehicle. Anyways, did you change the engine coolant at 100K miles (as per maintenance recommendation)? If so, how much did it cost?

    Hellz Yeah. My gen 2 is still running after 235k. I expect nothing less for Optimus Prime.

    You can do that yourself. It's super easy. The inverter/tranny coolant is easy too. You just need a $10 hex driver set from Harbor Freight and a cheap liquid pump for $8 on Amazon. The how-to videos are on youtube. The skill level requirment is about equal to an oil change.
